Multi-Node Definition for Art-Net/sACN

Problem

Single Node definition for Art-Net/sACN makes use of Photon in environments with multiple nodes that run different universes challenging.

Solution

Create a setting called Node Name which will define IP address, Universe and protocol of a given node for that specific entry.

Workaround

Photon deployed on multiple iPads.

Notes/Comments

What brought me to this was the thought that I want to integrate some true DMX controlled lights in to my environment and I can’t easily do that right now. I could by another iPad but that would probably end up being the entry level iPad Pro and that would end up being way more than the cost of a couple of lights from say Tom Top and an Art-Net to DMX bridge.

I seem to be coming up some odd use cases here.
